Sew Convenient Alterations

How it all Began

Grace & Lace shares it’s beautiful space with Sew Convenient Alterations. It all started as an alterations space for owner and seamstress, Kelly. The end goal was always to have a bridal shop and Kelly is thrilled to be able to combine her two loves, sewing and bridal gowns.

In House Alterations

The wonderful part of being the home of an alterations shop as well as a bridal shop is knowing your gown is in loving hands from start to finish. We offer alterations on all bridal gowns purchased from Grace & Lace Bridal. We also accept outside bridal, bridesmaids, and mothers alterations. We do not accept bridal gowns purchased from online retailers, David’s Bridal, or Amazon.  Please call if you have more in depth questions and concerns. 

Please setup your alterations appointment with plenty of time to get the fit perfect.

Bridal Alterations
Please allow at least 3 Months before the big day to start your bridal alterations. Worried about weight loss? No worries that can be addressed at your first fitting, there are other parts of your dress that may need work, we can always wait on the fit till closer to the date. ALWAYS BRING YOUR SHOES!! Shoes are very important to get the hemline perfect. If you plan to take your heels off, keep in mind however tall the heels are, that will be how much longer the dress will be after you take them off. Pricing can not be determined until your gown is seen in person to know how it is constructed and seeing what exactly will need to be done.

We require a non-refundable deposit to secure a spot on our outside alterations list for gowns not purchased from Grace & Lace Bridal.  This deposit does get applied to alterations fees. 

Bridesmaids & Mothers Dresses
It is recommend to begin alterations 3-4 weeks before the wedding. Sew convenient accepts all outside alterations on all bridesmaids & mothers dress.

Custom Alterations
If you are interested in having custom changes done to your wedding gown such as; removable skirts, sleeves, neckline changes, or anything that will change the original style, please contact Kelly to check availability and allow for additional time for customization. Recommended to begin 4-6 months before for custom alterations.

Custom Veils
Kelly makes custom veils and has samples on display in the bridal shop. Custom veils can be discussed during your first alterations appointment. Only require a month advance notice.
